The Eight Rune is the first book of the Rune series by Dutch author Adrian Stone. A direct sequel to his Devil trilogy.
Marak Fourfingers, the hero in Adrian Stone’s Devil-trilogy, is no more.
But the information recorded in his Bequeathed Narratives presents the ruthless God-Emperor of the bleak continent of Kadish with a unique opportunity. Marak’s writings could give him access to the rune that will grant omnipotence, the Eighth Rune, and then the God-Emperor would be invincible. A young rune priest and a sword master are sent to Carolia to steal the book – a near impossible task.
At the same time Serina, a young Viguru priestess from Carolia, is taken captive by rune priests. She will face a time of cruelty and misery in the terrible Home of the Sisterhood, and a humiliating introduction to the God-Emperor. It all makes for a compellingly thrilling adventure in which Adrian Stone shares his visions on timeless, life-determining aspects: power and its misuse, discrimination, global harmony, and how to reach it. The moral of this double story: striving for absolute power is bound to turn against you.
